How old is Mollie King? Strictly Come Dancing 2017 contestant and Saturdays singer

MOLLIE King is part of girl band The Saturdays and followed in her bandmate Frankie Bridge's footsteps by going for the glitterball trophy on Strictly Come Dancing.

She was popular on the show alongside professional AJ Pritchard – with The Sun's Bizarre column revealing they may be more than just dance partners – but they were voted out at the semi-final stage. Here's the lowdown on Miss Mollie…

Mollie King is a singer and model from Wandsworth in London, best-known for being one fifth of girlband The Saturdays.

As a youngster Mollie was a skiing champion and a finalist in the Miss Guildford beauty pageant.

The 30-year-old began her rise to fame by auditioning for The X Factor in 2005 aged 18, where she clashed with Sharon Osbourne over her chosen outfit despite impressing with her vocal.

She returned in 2007 as part of girl band Fallen Angelz, but they did not progress past the Bootcamp round.

Then in that same year Mollie auditioned to be part of girl band The Saturdays, alongside the likes of Frankie Sandford, who had been a member of S Club Juniors.

As soon as they'd formed the group toured with Girls Aloud, and they eventually released four albums, selling five million of them.

Among their best-known songs are Ego, Issues and their cover of Just Can't Get Enough.

After seven years in action and four tours, plus their own show called Chasing The Saturdays, the band went on permanent hiatus in 2014.

In 2017 the band reunited for the first time to celebrate the decade since they formed.

Mollie released her debut single, Back To You, in 2016 but as yet no solo album is forthcoming.

Having dated Andy Brown, lead singer of Lawson, Mollie entered a high profile romance with British model David Gandy in 2011.

Their relationship lasted ten months, but they got back together in 2015, only to split again the following year.

Since then Mollie has been spotted with a few mystery men, has admitted to fancying DJ Calvin Harris, but doesn't appear to have a boyfriend at the moment.

She is rumoured to be romantically involved with her Strictly Come Dancing partner AJ Pritchard.

The Sun's Bizarre column revealed the pair were caught snogging during training for the show, with their secret romance the talk of backstage.

Neither of the pair have ever said they are dating and AJ has come out to again state they are not seeing each other.

Speaking to Metro he said: "No, we're not an item, but we're friends for life."
